LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. — Lake George residents have been invited to participate in the Keep the Queen Clean – Lake George Cleanup Day 2013 on Saturday.
The annual event is part of the area's campaign to keep the lake clean and to promote proper disposal of litter.
All towns within the Lake George watershed, the lake George Water Quality Awareness Committees, several volunteer groups, and hundreds of individuals are planning to participate in the event.
Participants will pick up litter along the shoreline, from streams, and in public places. Scuba divers and snorkelers will also be involved so that debris in deeper water can be collected. Blue trash bags will be provided to participants, and mesh bags are available to scuba divers.
